A Call to all Artists:

paint the skate park

  The Cranbrook Arts Council is working with Cranbrook's Recreation Department to revitalize our skatepark area. We are looking for 5 local East Kootenay artists to paint murals on the park during this event on Sam Steele Days.

  This revitalization needs your creativity and talent. This event takes place Saturday June 18th, from 2:00pm till 6:00pm during Sam Steele Days.

  One possible theme artists can draw from is the blend of Cranbrook Culture and Skate culture. What does the Skate Park represent to you?
